TUESDAY OCTOBER 8, 1996 – FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15, 1996In collaboration with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Storefront initiated a competition to redesign Lt. Petrosino Park, a wedged-shaped open space at the intersection of Lafayette, Centre and Kenmare Streets and Cleveland Place. Like Storefront itself, Petrosino Park is an offcut of urban space, measuring approximately 160 feet in length and 40 feet at its widest point. The redesign was intended to turn this under-used traffic island into an active and articulated public space for the surrounding community. Over 200 artists, architects and landscape architects from across the U.S. and around the world contributed proposals for the future park. From these, four projects were selected by a multidisciplinary jury including Mary Miss, Krzyztof Wodiczko, Billie Tsien and Coojse van Bruggen, for presentation to City officials and community leaders. Selected entries from the competition were exhibited at Storefront.Winning Projects: Craig Abel, Arch.
